Earth Hour 2017
Since 2007, WWF’s Earth Hour has been the force behind numerous environmental outcomes including helping to drive legislative changes, promoting individual actions to protect forests, oceans and wildlife, encouraging sustainable behavior and lifestyles, and helping spark global awareness and momentum on climate.
This year WWF Cambodia is focusing on you! Yes, you. We know the power each person has, this movement started as a way to develop initiative and responsibility towards the environment, the time has come now to act upon it. Our planet can only produce a finite number of resources – from food, to water, electricity or wood – when you make choices that are sustainable, you become responsible for your own consumption practices.
WWF-Cambodia’s’ theme this year is to shine a light on Sustainable Resource Use.
The campaign is aiming for bring to everybody’s attention the impacts their choices make and how far reaching they can be. We only have one Earth and are utterly dependent on it for our survival and well-being. But both people and nature are facing severe consequences if our current consumption increases. The biggest driver of environmental degradation is the fact that we’re consuming resources at an unsustainable rate, and therefore our production of goods is increasing. But as the world’s resources are coming under increasing pressure, so the constraints to growth are becoming increasingly visible.
We’re throwing light on issues such as deforestation, loss of habitat and wildlife, but this time its to move further into actions. Actions that you can take every day to save the environment by changing your choices. #MyChoices can change the world.
We welcome you to join our event, which will take place on Saturday, the 25th of March at the Wat Botum Park. We have arranged for a host of interesting activities with our brand ambassador. Engage in our social media contests, our sustainable products exhibitions and enjoy our music events
